“Decent zoo conveniently close to downtown Joberg”
Review of Johannesburg Zoo

Johannesburg Zoo
Reviewed 30 August 2006

My first view of the "big 5" here in South Africa. It's a decent zoo, but this is lots of construction going on right now. Should be more exciting when it's finished. Hike along the paths to see the lions, giraffes, zebras, elephants, monkes... and polar bears??? I thought it was wierd seeing polar bears in an African zoo.

This is not the same as going out to one of the safari parks but I suggest going there if you only want to take a short cab ride to see some wildlife.

They also provided little funny looking steerable cars to drive your kids around the park. Sorry, they are only push powered, no electric drive or anything fancy like that.
